Thanks to my awesome friend Jenn, I have discovered that Le Creuset DOES in fact make various colors of soup crock. Now the only problem is which one to pick???
Here is the aforementioned boring brown we all know:
And his stubby, pint-sized friend:
So really, the question I pose to all of you is this: What color?
Or should I hold out for them to also come out in the newest shades of pale "Lilac" and the darker purple "Cassis" which I can only find a picture of here.
But then look at how cute this is!
I also found these as possibly in the running, but they did a bait and switch on me because they were shown in a pretty pale blue w/ navy trim, but then I could only find them in this cream w/ black, or brown.
Run far away.
Since that was quite scary, and I didn't mean to do that to you, I shall end with these adorable little numbers, also from Le Creuset.
My, what adorable little berries you have!
Get your mind out of the gutter!
They are supposed to be bakeware but I can only imagine using them as containers of various jams served in some quaint country breakfast setting complete with scones and crumpets and Devonshire cream.
I just love the squat little blueberry, tho!!! (and just realized he reminds me of Boo from Super Mario only he's missing his face and giant tongue...)
While I am considering waiting on the Cassis soup bowl because I am such a sucker for most things purple, I would honestly like to know how people would vote. So scroll back to the top of this blog post and vote in that little box on the right! And someone explain to me what a cocotte is because when I looked it up online it said,
1. (Cookery) a small fireproof dish in which individual portions of food are cooked and served
2. a prostitute or promiscuous woman
Well thank you, I guessed at definition #1 because it was made by Le Creuset, and #2 shut your mouth I'm a married woman!
But go vote and tell me what color covered in bubbling browning cheese would make you happiest when served my Fabulous French Onion Soup!
